Hi Everyone! I am Matt and from Rochester NY. I've been into boating since I was little and currently have a few toys to call my own. My first is a 92 SeaRay 200 with a Merc 5.7L, have had it for quite a while.
Second is a 1969 Howard that I just picked up that brought me to this site. Its powered by a 454 (still working on cleaning it up and getting it ready to go in) with a Hallcraft V Drive. I scored it pretty cheap right out of a 30year storage. It has all the parts, including chrome thats in great shape, except for a motor which I just happened to have a spare 454 kicking around. My goals for this boat are to have the 454 dolled up cosmetically and installed for this upcoming boating season and then start to build the engine in my spare time. The hull is in great shape but needs some buffing which I plan to do in the spring when we get some warmer weather.
I look forward to posting pictures of the progress!
